In case you needed further proof that Princess Charlotte looks just like her father The Duke of Cambridge, look no further than this cute clip which shows even Prince William can mistake himself for this daughter some times.

During his first joint engagement with the Duchess of Cambridge this year, Prince William was shown the incredible baking skills of one woman as part of their day trip to Bradford, West Yorkshire.

The couple visited the Khidmat Centres where they were shown an impressive cake and cupcakes which featured photographs of the royal couple – all edible – throughout important milestones in their lives including their engagement, wedding and the birth of their three children.

We’ve always thought four-year-old Princess Charlotte definitely took after her father and it seems Prince William thinks so too. When he leaned in closer for a better look at the photographs, he was taken aback when he couldn’t figure out whether one of them was him as a child or a photo of his daughter!

“Is that me? Doesn’t it look like Charlotte?” William asked the woman, to which Kate replied: “It looks so much like Charlotte.”

“Is that me?” he asked again, to which the woman nodded, amused.

“Oh my goodness that looks just like Charlotte,” William said, “It’s incredible, I haven’t seen that before. Very alike in similarity.

“Mary Berry would be very impressed right now,” he laughed.

Last year on Charlotte’s fourth birthday in May, Kensington Palace shared three adorable portraits of the young princess taken by her mother and royal fans were quick to pick up the similarities between her and a young Prince William – it’s all in the eyes and that smile!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travelled to Bradford on Wednesday to visit a number of community projects across the city – one of the most diverse in the UK.

During their visit to the city, the couple toured the My Lahore’s flagship restaurant, a British Asian restaurant chain with inspiration taken from the food capital of Pakistan, Lahore, where the royal couple visited late last year.

The royals tried their hands at making mango lassis before they sat down with representatives from the UK Women’s Muslim Council and people who had benefited from the Council’s Curry Circle, an initiative that provides a hot two-course meal for people who are homeless or struggling to feed themselves.

At one of the two Khidmat Centres in Bradford, the duchess also took part in a Little Dots workshop led by Better Start Bradford, which uses music and play to support children’s social, emotional and physical development and support adult self-esteem – something Catherine is incredibly passionate.

The couple also joined a Near Neighbours workshop, which brings together people from religiously and ethnically diverse communities to help build relationships of trust and to collaborate on initiatives that will help improve their local communities.

Despite being in the middle of a royal crisis – with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex last week announcing they were relinquishing their roles as senior royals – the couple looked happy and relaxed.

Earlier in the week, Prince William travelled to Sandringham for an emergency meeting with The Queen, his father Prince Charles and Prince Harry. Following the Sussexes’ shock announcement, the Palace and the Queen have been eager to find workable solutions as quickly as possible that will accommodate the couple’s wishes to step back as senior royals, split their time between Canada and the UK and to be financially independent.

Following the meeting, which took place on Monday, London time, the Queen released an incredibly personal statement confirming the Sussexes would no longer be full-time working royals.

“Today my family had very constructive discussions on the future of my grandson and his family,” the 93-year-old monarch wrote in a statement.

“My family and I are entirely support of Harry and Meghan’s desire to create a new life as a young family. Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working Members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as w family while remaining a valued part of my family.

“Harry and Meghan have made it clear they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives.

“It is therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the UK.”

Concluding, “These are complex matter for my family to resolve, and there is some work to be done, but I have asked for final decisions to be reached in the coming days.”
